For businesses, having an in house surveillance system is a resource that greatly deters internal theft. Employees are more aware of a surveillance system tracking their every move when they are considering stealing cash or merchandise from their employer. Having a surveillance system will help you watch and learn what your employees are doing- even after you have left the building.
CCTV- closed circuit television- is a common form of surveillance system. It is a system of at least one or more cameras linked via a centralized monitor and recording device.
These systems can be as simple as a single camera overlooking the cash register with a TV and VCR. They can be as sophisticated as multiple cameras that move and tilt under a user’s control- liked via digital screens and recording devices. Whatever the actual set up is, having a surveillance system in place reduces the likelihood of internal theft.
For those that do attempt to steal from your business, there is a greater chance that the thefts had been recorded, and can be used to determine which employee stole what merchandise. This provides a resolution and recourse if you decide to terminate or prosecute that employee.
Many employee theft investigations have been resolved simply by a review of surveillance footage. More over, when you are seeking to prosecute these employees for employee theft, having more concrete evidence such as recorded surveillance can help you win the case.
